I thought iPads were ridiculously stupid at first and just a fad and just a big iPhone and a laptop is way better. But then I saw an iPad being used in a Levi's store in JCPenny. It was an app to help you pick jeans and I just thought that was totally cool like very futuristic. Then I started seeing huge phones and liking the screen size but not for a phone so I got an iPad mini. I'm not sure if that counts as having a full fledged iPad or not but I love it. The little things I like are things like a much more coherent os and apps just install and no worries about program files and autocorrect.
